Halifax Mayor Mike Savage definitely knows how to promote a concert. 

You can have the best artists in the world booked to perform, but if no one knows about the show, no one’s going to turn up. So once you’ve got the date, the venue, and the artists in place, you need to get more people to attend your event. And for that, you need to know how to promote concerts.

In a video posted on Twitter, Halifax Mayor, Mike Savage tries his hand at DJing wearing deadmau5′ helmet, just to promote a free concert for Canada Day celebrations, and also learns how deadmau5 is actually pronounced.

“With some help from our friends in Ottawa, we have a big party planned to mark Canada 150. That’s right, a free concert on the Halifax Common featuring headliner deadmau-five,”

Halifax Regional Municipality has announced the headliners for this years free Canada day celebration in the city. Deadmau5 will bring for the first time in Canada, his new CUBE 2.1 stage set up to ring in the 150th anniversary of confederation.

The bill is rounded out with R&B queen Reeny Smith, rocker Matt Mays, Celtic-roots band Ashelin and Franco-rocker Izabelle Ouellet. Of course, the annual fireworks show will cap things off.
